Good Lord. I don't write many reviews. But, Christ! This guy is legit. I went in on Saturday for a 90-minute massage after a stressful week and came out an hour later feeling like a different person. Outrageous. If you want to treat yourself right, book some of this fella's time.

Most massages I have had have been good but rarely, if ever, exceptional, especially on a whim booking. From the first touch to the last of my brief one-hour massage, I was in awe of Han’s fantastic gift. He was completely in tune with my body and put all his strength and effort into it. He is not an ordinary masseuse and belongs somewhere that will highlight his talent more. You will not be disappointed!

If you’re looking for a massage, Hermann Hans is the man! One of the best massages I’ve ever had. I am seriously considering replacing my chiropractor’s appointments and switching to him.

Hans gave me a therapeutic massage, it was incredible. He has hands that are like heat-seeking missiles and can zero in on the spaces in my body that needed the most attention. I left feeling completely relaxed, and my body feels like butter! Thank you, Hans, highly recommend.

Herman is absolutely amazing. I just had my first session with him and I already feel so much relief. I had a baby recently and have been hesitant to get bodywork in case things just didn't feel right, I wish I booked with him sooner! He worked every area I needed and without a ton of talk, which I like. I like deep work but also can't stand it when therapists keep working in the same area for too long. He flowed from the places I needed more work on to other sites, then would come back. My massage felt way longer than the 90 minutes we scheduled. Can't wait for our next session. Do yourself a favor and take care of your body!! You will be so glad you did.

Perfect massage from start for finish. The massage space is easy to find and very comfortable. As for the massage, it's exactly what I needed; long strokes and with trigger points. He clearly knows what he is doing and loves doing it.
